Youth OC News / The Status / 2014-03-06 from The Youth OC on YouTube.
This is an excellent example of the power of creativity overcoming the limitations of a low budget. This YouTube-inspired announcement video was created by Abigail Ogas for their youth service at The Church OC. Using only an iPhone and two apps (iMovie and FiLMiC Pro), she singlehandedly produced it from concept to completion.
A friend of mine who shared this on Facebook said something really powerful about it. “Success is not about your resources, it’s about how resourceful you are.” These are great words to keep in mind as you work in ministry!
Keep up the great work, guys!

This has become one of my favorite videos lately. I’ll sometimes visit it when I’m in a creative slump just to get a reminder of why I do what I do. So much inspiration that can be pulled from it. There’s certainly the video’s style and camera shots that look incredible. The way that the filmmaker tells this “testimony” story is very unique, too. I think there’s something there to be learned. Of course, Tony’s music throughout the mini-film was amazing. But, above all, I shared this because I think it will serve as a encouragement to all of us. God put our gifts of creativity, our designer’s eye, and our love for Church Media in us for a reason. And it’s when we’re most connected with Him that we will flourish.

2013 Legacy from Church of the Highlands on Vimeo.
The second portion of this video, starting at 3:14, really stood out to me. (You may have to use this link to skip forward.) Hearing Pastor Chris’s vision for Church of the Highlands is definitely inspiring. I love the b-roll footage that paints a very clear picture of all that he describes. PLUS, I’m a sucker for all of Tony Anderson’s music, so the soundtrack was perfect to me.
Have you ever shared your pastor’s vision for your church via video?
